What have they done to K-5 with v1.13 only shows the potential of the camera. The question is where are the limits of the hardware?

Cheers,

Considering from how long the Prime Engine was in DSLR (since K7 - 2009 ) i think Pentax already squeezed the best they can of it.

The Prime M engine in all new DSLR shows that either the Prime is not build anymore, or that it couldn't handle very well new things.

The fact that Adam bunged this on the front page of the website suggests to me it's true. He must have press releases etc by now but is under an NDA. Nothing to stop him reposting accurate 'rumours' though.

And this camera is in addition to the 24mp flagship camera. It's not the flagship.

But I feel your pain LFLee, when I bought my K7 I thought that the sensor was going to be better than the Kx, instead they did put a horrible Samsung sensor, with a terrible dynamic range, In other words a "Ferrari with a thought Volkswagen beetle engine" like someone pointed out here in this forum.
Does this mean I own a VW Beetle with a Ferrari engine???
